LEAVING HEDDON’S MOUTH.

An acrylic painting inspired by a walk down to Heddon’s Mouth from Hunters Inn. We walked North up along the South West Coast Path from the Heddon Valley and had a picnic there amongst the rocks enjoying the views up and down the North Devon Coast. This view is looking toward Crock Point, Lee Abbey, Valley of the Rocks and in the distance Countisbury. 750 x 500mm acrylic on canvas.

Lee Abbey.

A small acrylic on panel of a section of the South West Coast Path between Heddon’s Mouth and Lee Abbey, 370 x 610mm acrylic on panel. You can see the dot of the Abbey in the distance of this painting in the sunshine. I’ve tried to portray the cool shadows against the warm Spring sunshine and am trying to simplify my brushwork somewhat. We’re looking forward to visiting Hunter’s Inn again when it opens for a few drinks.   Al

From a plein air acrylic sketch made during the summer, seen below, I’ve added some additional digital layers to plan the progress of this painting.  Heddon’s Mouth is a wonderful pebble beach on the coast of North Devon.  The National Trust have the wonderful Hunter’s Inn here which is both pub, hotel & restaurant.  The circular walk from this place down to Heddon’s Mouth and back is one of my favourite walks.  More progress pictures to follow as this composition unfolds.
